Mark Dion : misadventures of a 21st-century naturalist by Ruth Erickson( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive survey of American artist Mark Dion, examining three decades of his critically engaged practice interrogating our relationship with nature The first book in two decades to consider the entire oeuvre of Mark Dion (b. 1961), this volume examines thirty years of the American artist's pioneering inquiries into how we collect, interpret, and display nature. Part of a generation of artists expanding institutional critique in the 1990s, Dion adopted the methods of the archaeologist or the natural history museum, juxtaposing natural objects, taxidermy, books, and more to reorganize the natural and the manmade in poetic, witty ways. These sculptures, installations, and interventions offer novel approaches to questioning institutional power, which he sees as connected to the control and representation of nature. Generously illustrated, this publication introduces new insights and features more than seventy-five artworks

Concrete jungle( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late 19th century, Eugene Scheifflin, prosperous New York drug manufacturer, amateur ornithologist and Shakespeare enthusiast, had a plan: to inventory, import and naturalize every bird mentioned by the Bard. Unfortunately for North American farmers and indigenous birds, Henry IV, Part 1 contains a reference to the starling. In 1890, Scheifflin released 40 pairs of European starlings into Central Park. A year later, the birds had already colonized Staten Island. It took the starlings just 55 years to establish themselves from coast to coast and north to Alaska, decimating many native species, including the bluebird. Concrete Jungle examines this story and myriad other examples of the unpredictable mutations and side-effects that have taken place as urban environments and Nature meet and sometimes collide

Lost paradise : Mark Dion, Stefan Panhans, Andreas Schulze, Marta Volkova and Slava Shevelenko, David Zink Yi by Zdenek Felix( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Frage, inwieweit wir mit unserer animalischen Natur verbunden sind und was unser Dasein von dem der Tiere trennt, übt bis heute eine anhaltende Faszination aus. Auch Insekten und andere, dem Menschen unähnliche Tiere bilden ein reichhaltiges Reservoir für metaphorische Vergleiche zum Verhalten von Individuen oder ganzen Gemeinschaften. Die Publikation Lost Paradise geht dieser Metaphorik in der Gegenwartskunst nach, lässt Urtiere bildnerisch wieder aufleben, erfindet Käfer, die sich in Geldstücke transformieren können oder verwandelt naturkundliche Archivalien in surreale Wunderkammern.00Exhibition: KAI 10 | Arthena Foundation, Düsseldorf, Germany (11.10.2014-14.02.2015)

Tiré du site de l'éditeur: "Mit diesem Reprint aus der Bibliothek des amerikanischen Künstlers Mark Dion startet die Edition "Ex Libris". Den Interessen und Forschungen des Künstlers entsprechend wurde das 1704 verfasste und (Paul Jacob Marperger zugeschrieben) anonym erschienene Buch über Kunst- und Raritätenkammern neu aufgelegt und steht damit sowohl dem Kunsthistoriker als auch dem Künstlerbüchersammler als unveränderter Reprint zur Verfügung. Das vorliegende Buch enthält neben zahlreichen Kupferstichen und dem Plan des "idealen Raritätenhauses" auch ein umfangreiches Verzeichnis europäischer Kunst- und Wunderkammern mit Beschreibung der jeweiligen Besonderheiten. In dieser von Gerhard Theewen herausgegebenen neuen Edition bekommt der Begriff Künstlerbuch eine neue Dimension. Der für die Edition Ex Libris eingeladene Künstler wählt ein für seine Arbeit, sein Kunstverständnis, bedeutendes Buch aus, das er unter seinem Namen als Reprint präsentiert. So wird das Buch aus der Bibliothek des jeweiligen Künstlers durch das von ihm gestaltete Ex Libris zu seinem Buch, das in der Bibliothek der Sammler und Bibliophilen dann unter seinem Namen eingeordnet werden wird. Auf diese Art werden Quellenwerke für das Verständnis der Arbeit zeitgenössischer Künstler in einem neuen Licht gesehen und dem Vergessen entrissen."
